Program Overview

The Oregon Social Learning Center (OSLC) Treatment Foster Care program places youth with a history of juvenile delinquency in trained foster families with the goal of providing delinquent adolescents with closer supervision, fair and consistent limits, predictable consequences for rule-breaking, a supportive relationship with at least one adult mentor, and less exposure to delinquent peers. The intervention is primarily provided by the foster families, caseworkers, and therapists, however biological/adoptive families have some put into the treatment.
